Practical Healing For Mind And Body by Jane Yarnall is essential reading for Abrahamic New Thought adherents. Yarnall was one of the early New Thought leaders who was familiar with John Bascom's Science of Mind and New Theology. Jarne Yarnall, like many progressives of her time, did not live in a bubble. She subscribed to some of the same magazines as Thomas Troward which included Arena Magazine and Open Court Magazine.
Jane Yarnall writes: "TOWARD the close of the primary course of lessons, the student of the Science of Mind is very apt to wonder if these principles will work for him as they do for others."
As an adherent of John Bascom's Science of Mind, she does not shy away from writing about the importance of ethics. It should be noted that Ernest Holmes was a toddler when Jane Yarnall was writing about Science of Mind. When Holmes grew up, he eventually read every word that Yarnall and Bascom wrote.
Yarnall was one of the early Science of Mind pioneeers who was unafraid to explore the full canon of spiritual texts available to her "It has been very wisely and truly said that "Ignorance of truth is the cause of all misery. This was the inspired utterance of Gautama Buddha, five hundred years before Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
We are so blessed to know the truth about Science of Mind today. By combining Bascom's original Science of Mind with the Holmes brothers' (Fenwicke and Ernest) extension of Bascom's work, we evolve to 21st Century New Thought which lifts the soul through deepening our understanding and raising our consciousness.
